Adventure Update



Well, it took 3 hours on ferries and 13 hours on trains over 2 days, but it was worth it – I had a fantastic time visiting Mallaig and Muck.

Thanks to everyone at Mallaig Primary for a great visit and tremendous questions on DNA: there were definitely some budding scientists in the audience.

Eigg and Muck Primary pupils made me very welcome. I even got to play Zombie Tig with them, and that’s a first for an author visit! Here they are after being thoroughly zombified…


Add to that porpoises, seals and Minke whales on the way back to the mainland, and it was a pretty special trip…
